Horbury Academy Governors

Our team of Governors play a vital role in our school. They are the custodians of the high standards of academic excellence and the welfare of all our children. Our Governors are part of our Leadership Team. They give us lots of challenge and set us high targets. They act as our critical friend.

We are proud of the commitment and dedication shown by our Governors. They show this dedication not just through attending meetings and monitoring standards but also in their presence at functions and special events. They have a real knowledge of our school through their links with different classrooms and a vibrant mix of training and cooperative working with the teaching staff.

If you wish to contact the Chair of Governors, please use the school address.

The Accord Multi Academy Trust is an educational charity established in September 2016 that is currently made up of four academies who were the founding members of the Trust. In September 2016 Horbury Academy and Ossett Academy & Sixth Form College came together, moving away from their stand-alone Trust status and were joined in December 2016 by Horbury Primary Academy and Middlestown Primary Academy.

The overarching vision for the Trust is to work in one ‘Accord – celebrating the differences of each academy through strong collaboration in order to inspire all members of our learning community to be the best that they can be.
